Mayor Announces Technology Grant for New Summer Program

Mayor Announces Technology Grant for New Summer Program Today Mayor Edwin M. Lee and Microsoft announced a technology grant of $500,000 in software and $15,000 in computers that will directly support the students of the Bridge to Success Summer Program and San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) schools. This is the first year of the Bridge to Success Summer Program, a 6-week summer transition program for historically underrepresented, low-income and first-generation SFUSD high school graduates who plan to enroll at City College of San Francisco (CCSF) in the fall. The summer program is being run by Beyond 12, a nonprofit supporting college completion.

“We are truly grateful to Microsoft for their generous donation in support of our summer program and SFUSD schools,” said Mayor Lee. “We are here today with our next generation of innovators and leaders, but they need the tools to help them achieve those dreams.  Together with the Bridge to Success Summer Program and the computers from Microsoft we hope to give them the skills they need to succeed.” Read more.
